The Siachen Glaciers, known as the world’s highest battlefield, are located in the eastern Karakoram mountain range in the Himalayas, huddled next to the borders of Pakistan, India, and China.
The region includes the world’s second-longest glaciers, stretching an impressive 76 kilometers (47 miles).
The South Asian neighbors and rivals of Pakistan and India both claim sovereignty over the entire Siachen region.
